What an amazing addition to this series and each story will read well as a stand-alone but will have characters from previous stories. What can I say about this story---I loved the characters, loved the honest interactions, nothing over the top, but instead a realistic feeling that included angst, passion, and pleasure. Ms. Alyssa Bailey tells a story and keeps it real. Being someone with a strong military family background, I love military hero books.
The story begins in the middle east and will bring Major Felicity Torrez, MD, and chopper pilot, Major Darrel ‘Chopper’ Frazier on a mission together. It will be her last because she leaves to return to the states the next day. When they return to base, they will spend a few hours talking, exchange a kiss and phone numbers.
Felicity: “It’s time for a new direction. I’d like a family before it’s too late. It’s time to put down roots, plant a tree and see it grow.”
Chopper: “I take care of all who belong to my family, which includes close friends. You are part of my group now. It’s Darrell. Darrell Frazier and I look forward to our next meeting, Felicity Torrez. I’ll take you to dinner, and we can discuss the merits of having an overnighter.”
Felicity: “Goodbye, Darrell Frazier. It’s been nice getting to know you.”
Chopper: “See you later, sweetheart.”
The story picks up two years later, and Chopper is out of the military with over twenty years of service. He tried calling the number Felicity gave him, but she no longer had the number. Now, it is his goal to find her—yet she is closer than he realizes—what a shock to show up at Zed’s house for a party and come face-to-face with the woman of his dreams. More than that, Felicity is just as excited to see him again, and this begins their civilian journey. “They complemented each other.”
“Felicity had been hired by the Indian Health Services through the Defense Health Agency Civilian Corps to meet the medical and often mental health needs of their Native people.”
“Chopper wanted to more than charm Felicity. He wanted to captivate her, capture her, and claim her. It was a little caveman-ish, but that was how he felt around her.”
The good, the bad, and the evil are all part of this story. Felicity and Chopper have great chemistry together and seem to mesh well. Their relationship is going well; they have just the right level of give and take, understanding of each other’s jobs, knowing that the unexpected can and will happen, and work with it. But, when Felicity doesn’t make it home, doesn’t answer her phone, it has Chopper and Zed’s team on alert. Worry about the dangers on the island, knowing rumors of a possible attempted kidnapping; they won’t stop until they find her. My heart was pounding as Felicity is facing danger, and Chopper is going out of his mind until he finds her.
“It’s in my nature to protect what is mine.”
The story is mystery and suspense, life and death danger, kidnapping and rescue. While Ms. Bailey pens this tale, she doesn’t make this story into a dominant submission with heavy domestic discipline; instead, it is a tale of two people and a slow simmering romance and falling in love. It is the relationship and erotic chemistry of Chopper and Felicity, with all their hopes, dreams, and future plans.
“He could handle this role. It was who he wanted to be forever, her shield against the evil of the world.”
“Who would have ever guessed that the best tactical decision of my life was to take a female Army Doc to help do triage in the field on her last day in country.”

You can't beat this grouping of authors for .99. I have read all of these authors at one time or another and I definitely recommend their books. I will review as I read.
I was not paid for these reviews. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to these authors. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 9/9/2021
My favorite? Forever & Always by Susanne Matthews
This is the story of Brandi and Jarret. It’s a story of a lost life, a lost way of life, but then the reclaiming of what’s left and the love it brings. If you like stories of renewal and second chances, this is the book for you.
Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.
Kissing Plans by Mona Risk. This reader enjoyed reading the Love Plans Series - 1. Sailing Away Plans, 2. Dating Plans, 3. Rescue Plans, 4. Wedding Plans, 5. Baby Plans. Kissing Plans is book 6 in this series, but is presented as a stand alone book. What I missed was that Mona Risk did not include the premise of the story and the family tree. As a retiree with a limited attention span, Mona Risk writes her stories in an engaging, page turning style. She immediately states the dilemma, has well spaced conflicts, interspersed dialog with narrative which keeps the plot moving and a believable resolution. I enjoyed the international feel to this story. Having missionary friends in Thailand, the Thai culture is presented accurately. As a mother of sons, I enjoyed how Royce put Kasem in his place, while supporting the love of his life Susan. A well written second chance at love romance.

Kelly and Mike did not have a pleasant first meeting, or second. It was unpleasant to say the least. After Mike realized he was unpleasant to Kelly things changed. With Kelly's secret she didn't wanting to get into a serious relationship, however, that didn't work to well. This is book 5 in the Unexpected series. You don't have to read the previous books, however, I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed. This is a fabulous series.
